Tefl and teaching in Cusco, Peru

Going to do my TEFL and teach in Peru was without a doubt the best thing I have ever done and TEFL heaven made the process so enjoyable, easy and made me feel very safe, secure and excited to head out there alone! They were incredibly attentive and sensitive to my many questions and set me up with an amazing TEFL providor which taught me an invaluble amount and provided me with friends for life! I am so grateful to TEFL heaven and my TEFL providor for the unforgettable opportunity and experience that has helped shaped who i am today! The company was helpful, friendly and professional and made me feel at ease to go away alone. The experience was life changing and so rewarding i would not change a thing! It has opened up so many doors for me to travel and work and left me with the most amazing memories and friends!

What would you improve about this program?
There could be a little more transparency surrounding working on a tourist visa as it was not a problem at all but the lack of clarity surrounding it beforehand worried me. It is also really expensive compared to other tefl courses.

The Best of The Best

A little more than a year ago, I was supposed to go teach abroad with another organization in Vietnam. The program would've required an online TEFL course and would've really only gotten me in touch with a school. Not TEFL Heaven, though. Once I found TEFL Heaven, I decided to give it all another shot and I must say, it has proven to be one of the best experiences I've ever had. Completing a TEFL course in person (as you would with any of TEFL Heaven's locations) has proven to be much more effective and I can't imagine doing the course any other way. I had so much support. I was connected with amazing resources at my center as well as at others in various parts of South America, and ended up landing a separate job teaching English in Colombian public schools through their Ministry of Education program. Because of the experience I was given through TEFL Heaven, I've secured English teaching positions for the summer in Turkey and the next year in Japan. Thanks TEFL Heaven!

Teaching English with TEFL

I´m currently teaching English in Cusco, Peru with my TEFL certification that I completed in March. I actually got hired while still in the course, so I would say finding a job is really easy, especially here in Cusco. The course work wasn´t hard for me personally although you should be prepared to do a lot of out of class work. The course ran from 9-4 every day. The course is expensive but worth it, but only if you are planning on actually using it. Some students wanted a vacation and that is not the right mind set to have. I don´t recommend using the school to coordinate housing as they will overcharge you a ton! I just used Airbnb, or you can also stay in a hostel here as a lot of other students did. When entering Peru specifically, at the airport you will want to ask the immigration officer for the max amount of time allowed (which is currently 6 months). If looking to stay and work in Cusco, I highly recommend it. The city is tranquil, gorgeous, and the people are friendly. There is also a ton to do especially if you enjoy the outdoors.

What would you improve about this program?
Coordinators could offer more disclosure about cheap ways to find housing options. There is absolutely no need to be paying $600/month for a room. For example, I pay $330 per month for a two bedroom apartment which is shared by another person, making rent $165/month!

My TEFL Adventure started in Cusco

I arrived in Cusco feeling anxious, having spent so much time researching which course to take and having spent so much money on the course and traveling to Peru from the UK. I immediately felt at ease when I was met at the airport and taken straight to the office where I was greeted by the incredibly knowledgeable and friendly international team. I was then taken to my host family. The family made my Cusco TEFL experience really unforgettable, they cooked traditional Peruvian food for dinner every night, often provided us with a bowl of fresh Peruvian fruit for breakfast and even invited us to accompany them on trips sometimes at the weekend.

The TEFL training was really enjoyable. the other TEFL students became great friends and Claudia our TEFL trainer was heaps of fun, making the 4 weeks consistently engaging with her humour and energy. She offered so much support throughout our time and this support even continued after I left Cusco when I was looking for a TEFL job in Chile. I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a South American TEFL experience.

What would you improve about this program?
I know not everyone was as lucky with their host families and would have enjoyed to be provided with more fruit and veg as I was, maybe a conversation with the host families to ensure there is always some sort of fresh fruit at breakfast would be beneficial.

Fun, Laughter and Learning

I decided to complete the TEFL certification course because I wanted to fulfil my passion for teaching and I wanted to travel.

I had no teaching background and before stumbling across the TEFL Heaven website, I had no idea how to make my teaching goals a reality. TEFL Heaven provided me with great insight into average teaching salaries, fun activities and the requirements live and teach in Peru.

I have just completed the one month TEFL certification course and will teach English in Cusco for the next six months.

Thanks to TEFL Heaven!!

TEFL Heaven-Cusco

The TEFL course in Cuzco was such a wonderful experience. I am so glad that I took the oppertunity to get TEFL certified. I met people in my class who I know will remain close friends. The class was definitely highly stressful at times, but also a lot of fun and it served as a nice transition period into Cusco life. For example, sometimes we would just spend class time getting to know each other and telling stories about our lives and why we came to Cuzco.

The most challenging part of the course was the practical teaching week. Here, students had to teach a class of native Spanish speakers for one week. After doing so, though, I feel much more prepared and experienced as I continue to seek work as an English teacher in Cuzco.

This class comes HIGHLY recommended from me.

What would you improve about this program?
The housing that the school provided is WAY too expensive by Cuzco's standards. Luckily, I am looking for a new apartment and have found some cheaper options.
